        The Northwood Fall Festival will be held Saturday, Oct. 13, rain or shine, at Central Park, located at Wales at Oram roads.

        The festival will kick off at 11 a.m. with a parade beginning at Northwood Commons on Woodville Road .

        “This is the third annual festival and we hope to keep it going,” said Pat McGaharan, the Fall Festival chairman.

        New this year are the Dino-ROAR Ohio! And Frogtown Exotics in the kids area, according to McGaharan.

        “The dinosaurs are all life size. They will walk through the festival and interact with the kids. They will also be on parade and put on two shows on stage,” he said. “It will be really cool for the kids."

       A forfeiture judgment recently settled in Wood County Common Pleas Court will result in the Lake Township Police Department receiving $331,991 for its law enforcement drug fund.

        Police Chief Mark Hummer announced the settlement by Judge Reeve Kelsey during last week’s meeting of the township trustees.

        In all, $400,590 was forfeited to the police, county prosecutor’s office and court. In addition to the Lake Township share, the Perrysburg Township Police Department drug fund will receive $7,999.80; the Wood County prosecutor’s office will receive $59,998.45 for its law enforcement trust fund, and $600.34 will be used to cover court costs.

        Lake Township may establish its own composting program for leaves and brush it collects from residents.

        Mark Hummer, township administrator, said last week during a meeting of the township trustees he’s filing an application with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency for the required permits to compost.

        Two building permits have been approved by the City of Oregon for a Chipotle Mexican Grill Restaurant at 2924 Navarre Avenue, according to James Gilmore, the building and zoning commissioner in Oregon.

        A Frisch’s Big Boy Restaurant that is now closed at that location at the intersection of Navarre Ave. and Harbor Dr. is currently being renovated for Chipotle.

        “One of the permits that was approved was for the shell of the building - to get it ready for Chipotle’s people to come in and make their alterations inside,” said Gilmore. The other permit was for the interior refurbishing of the building.

        Gilmore said Chipotle is not required to pull any more permits for the restaurant.

        “All of the permits they need have been issued,” he said.

        The Northwood Fire Department received an $11,000 grant for regional Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Program, which is a branch of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) Program, to conduct a study of fire/EMS operations.

        The grant is from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and is in partnership with the Lake Township and Rossford Fire departments. Matching funds are not required for this grant.
